Designing AI Engines of Xilinx Versal ACAP Using Simulink and Vitis Model Composer


Versal ACAP is Xilinx’s newest compute platform and it includes a processing technology known as AI Engines.   They can accelerate machine learning inference and advanced signal processing workloads such as beamforming, FFTs, and filters.

In this webinar, engineers from MathWorks and Xilinx will show how Simulink and Vitis Model Composer can be used to target AI Engines and programmable logic. Using a 4 giga-sample per second FIR filter as a reference example, the presenters will model, simulate and optimize their design to achieve the best system performance, implement the filter on the AI Engine array, and show how to generate a complete system. 


  • Introduce Xilinx Versal ACAP platform and AI Engine processing technology
  • Use Simulink and Vitis Model Composer to design, simulate and optimize a 4GSPS Filter using super sample rate architecture
  • Target filter design to AI Engines and programmable logic 
  • Show a hardware demonstration

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
